John Ruddock

Contact John Ruddock

Hi, my name is John Ruddock. I grew up on the California coast in Half Moon Bay. Inspired by its beauty, I fell in love with video and photography at an early age and later received my BA in film. I have since moved my focus to photography. Because of my degree, I bring a very cinematic eye to my images and am always ready to catch the right moment. I specialize in weddings, proposals, engagements, and families. I really enjoy shooting on the beach and with over 30 years spent living on the coast I can recommend all the best spots. Let's make you look good!

Where are you located? Do you charge a travel fee for weddings not in your location?

I am based in Salinas, CA. I charge .50 cents per mile driven.

How long have you been in business? How many weddings have you photographed as the main photographer?

I have been working professionally for 2 years and have covered 11 weddings as the main photographer.

Describe your "style" of wedding photography.

I enjoy shooting posed images as well as candid although I think catching great candid shots is more fulfilling. When editing photos, I like to keep them looking and feeling real while enhancing certain aspects like mood and lighting.

What's the typical wedding coverage package that you offer? What is the price?

I have three packages to choose from. The first is booking my by the hour at $595. The second package is called "The Big Day". This is a three hour booking at $1495 that includes an engagement session on a different date. The third package I offer is an all day booking (8 hours) at $2495. This also includes an engagement session on a different date.

Do you have a studio where we can meet? Do you use Skype?

I do not have a studio. FaceTime and Zoom are preferred.

What are your professional degrees, credentials, affiliations? Have you taken any recent educational workshops or classes?

I have a degree in film which has trained me to have a very cinematic eye when shooting photography.

Is there anything else you'd like to share about yourself?

I will bring a fun sense of humor to your wedding. In the past I have written and performed stand up comedy so I'm sure we'll have a lot of fun!
